5 important steps to share with people

Do you know why you believe what you believe?  Can you show someone what the Word has to say about salvation?

On Sunday I was preaching from Romans 1:16-17

I am not ashamed of the gospel of Jesus Christ.

I started with a teaching segment on how to be prepared to talk with someone about your faith and have the Word of God ready to show them what it has to say.

Obviously, there are all sorts of ways that conversation can go.   How many times have you said “I can’t remember where it is but, in the Bible it says….” Here are 5 verses that can get you started.  An easy way to remember them is to write on the  inside cover of your Bible  “Romans 3:23” — as that is the starting verse.

With each scripture you can share from your heart what it means to you.

Romans 3:23 – all have sinned.  All means me, you and everyone.  At the end of this verse  write 6:23 – that is the next verse.

Romans 6:23  — the penalty for sin is death – gift of God is eternal life.  At the end of this verse  write “5:8”

Romans 5:8 – Christ died for us.  He paid the price we could never pay.  It is not the blood of a bull, ram or dove but the precious blood of Jesus Christ.  At the end of this verse  write “10:13”

Romans 10:13 – whoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved.   God hears us when we call.   At the end of this verse we leave Romans and go to John 14:6.  Write “John 14:6” at the end of verse 13.

John 14:6Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.”   This verse is extremely important to share as Jesus clearly states how we come to the Father.  If there was any other way, if His blood was not required…..  Jesus, Himself, prayed in the Garden “O My Father, if it is possible, let this cup pass from Me; nevertheless, not as I will, but as You will.”

It is important that we, as Christians, share what God has done and is doing in our lives.  Now you can easily take the Word of God and share the Gospel with anyone!

til next time

(I will post sermon notes later — lots of good things come from Romans 1:16-17)
